Fox has given an early second-season renewal to breakout freshman dramedy "Glee."

The show also is launching a nationwide casting search to fill new roles for season two. The auditions will start in February and will be open to amateurs and professionals between the ages of 16-26.

"Anybody and everybody now has a chance to be on a show about talented underdogs," co-creator/exec producer Ryan Murphy said. "No matter who you are -- a Broadway talent or a struggling singing waiter with a dream in the Midwest -- you now have an opportunity to make that dream come true by posting your talent video and showing us what you can do."


He noted that all roles will be chosen from the video audition process, making "Glee" "the first interactive musical comedy on television."

The casting search will be chronicled in a multi-part special that will lead up to "Glee's" second season premiere in the fall which will reveal the new cast members.
